    This is fantastic, an awesome resource, and an excellent starting point when developing open education resources!
  •  
    A great resource for developing courses using open ed resources. Thank you!
  •  
    Thank you for sharing this link! It not only embodies the spirit of the course and the diigo platform, but I am going to be greedy and bookmark it in my personal folder for use in my work as an Education Consultant.
  •  
    Thanks for posting this! it is indeed good sources for helping and encouraging people to learn with open access. Especially for those who is new to this 'open access' thing, this resource will help them to find the one that meet their need.
  •  
    thank you for these resources, we need this kind of initiative to improve and ease the access to education
  •  
    Thanks for sharing! I look forward to discovering and participating in Open education platforms and systems and sharing and contributing my thoughts, findings, information to others.
  •  
    This is so great! A list like this and the tools on it are the kinds of retoolss that do the most work, I think, towards multiplying access to education. I'm excited to explore all of these - thanks for sharing!
  •  
    Thanks for sharing this rich resource. I echo my colleagues' enthusiasm of this initiative. It seems like a great starting place for collaborators with all different backgrounds to come, develop and explore OER's.
  •  
    This is a very useful list. My favourite new resource from this list is LeMill. The source section is a vast and diverse resource for a wide range of free apps and services.
  •  
    Many Open Education Resources (OER) have been introduced by governments, universities, and individuals within the past few years. OERs provide teaching and learning materials that are freely available and offered online for anyone to use. Whether you're an instructor, student, or self-learner, you have access to full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, assignments, quizzes, activities, games, simulations, and source to create these components.
  •  
    Thanks. An extensive list of resources. It may have been easier to use the list if it wasn't categorised only alphabetically but also further grouped into categories. It's still a valuable collection.

    So, you need an image for your blog? We've spent some time categorizing our favorite sources for free images and organizing them in such a way as to help you find what you're looking for. Here are the criteria we've examined: Subjects: Does a site focus on specific genres of images, or is it a mass collection of various image types?

    Hi there! Thank you for sharing this resource. I think that it is extremely helpful to have a list of websites and pictures that I can use with respect to copyright listed on one page. There have been many times when I need to quickly find an image to use for a project, and have gotten caught up in trying to find a picture with an appropriate copyright license. I also did not know that images created by government employees were copyright exempt, and I really enjoyed searching through some of those sites!
  •  
    It's not only the Creative Commons part that is important but the Public Domain (CC0) pictures, that can be used.
  •  
    ¿Can any picture be used without failing into copyright stops?
  •  
    Thanks for sharing! The list is very useful. But I'm not sure if it is actually "OK" for university students to use online sources (videos from YouTube, or images downloaded from Google) for academic purpose/ personal use when talking about "fair dealing".
  •  
    Again, thak for sharing, this tools can be very interesting for who want to create an educational blog Julia Echeverria

    Thanks for sharing, nice blog
  •  
    Very helpful resource. The categories help to narrow one's search.
  •  
    Nice! Thanks for sharing. Both useful IRL, and pertinent to the course.

Recap of 2014 Open Knowledge Festival | Opensource.com - 1 views

  •  
    I was lucky to be in Berlin with some colleagues earlier this month for the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival and associated fringe events. There's really too much to distill into a short post-from Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, making the case for " Embracing the open opportunity," to Patrick Alley's breathtaking accounts of how Global Witness uses information, to expose crime and corruption in countries around the world.
  •  
    A useful summary of some of the key take-aways from the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival, courtesy of Tariq Khokhar From the article: 1. There are some great open data initiatives around the world and two common themes are the need for a strong community of technologically literate data re-users, and the sustained effort needed within governments to change how they create, manage and publish data in the long term. 2. Spreadsheets are code and we can adopt some software engineering practices to make much better use of them. There are a number of powerful tools and approaches to data handing being pioneered by the scientific community and those working in other fields can adopt and emulate many of them. 3. Open data fundamentally needs open tools software. App reuse often doesn't happen because contexts are too different. Reusable software components can reduce the development overhead for creating locally customized civic software applications and a pool of high quality civic software components is a valuable public good worth contributing to. Reading time: 15mins
  •  
    I see that Google are the sponsors of the 2014 Open Knowledge Festival but despite having little knowledge about Google's role and interest in the Open Knowledge , I also feel they are the culprit when it comes to data manipulative for their own profit motives.

Power of Twitter in classrooms - 5 views

    Pretty cool article about the power of twitter in classrooms and how education is changing. Lots of helpful charts as well. Edchat seems to be a great tool/source for anyone interested in education.

    Although the respondents would be pre-disposed to using social media as this was the source for the population group for the survey, I was surprised to see how much this, especially Twitter, was used by educators for their own professional self-development and in the classroom. The survey was divided into sections dealing with top concerns of educators, technology in the classroom, professional development for educators and the key benefits of education Twitter Chats, especially #Edchat.
  •  
    I was surprised of how to use social media for professional development and the classroom. Always had in my mind that social media was used only for fun. another paradigm falling to read this!

    This was fun to look at. I'm observing an increased of use in Twitter as a resource in business meeting and religious group settings, as well.

Home - Mahara ePortfolio System - 1 views

  •  
    Mahara is an open source ePortfolio and social networking web application. It provides users with source to create and maintain a digital portfolio of their learning and social networking features to allow users to interact with each other. Hola a todos. Hoy me gustaría haceros llegar una aplicación que utilizamos en la Universidad de Málaga para que los alumnos hagan los Portfolios relacionados con la asignatura que estén tratando, incluso permitiendo la relación entre contenidos de distintas asignaturas. Podéis ver la aplicación en la página web: https://mahara.org/ Mahara permite crear, controlar y desarrollar tu propio portfolio electrónico. Permite, asimismo, organizar las páginas que el alumno va creando, organizando su propio portafolio en páginas, permitiéndole crear las páginas que estime necesarias y adaptándolas al público que el alumno decida tener en cada página. En este sentido, le permite elegir qué elementos mostrar, cómo y cuando. Finalmente, y como algo muy positivo y dinámico, permite compartir con la red el contenido que hace el alumno, hacer amistades, participar en los grupos y, finalmente exportar todo el contenido en una página web que, posteriormente, puede ser compartida en Internet. Desde la Universidad de Málaga hacemos uso de esta herramienta y nos sirve como herramienta de evaluación de nuestros alumnos, donde vemos su capacidad de síntesis, comprensión y reflexión sobre las distintas materias que vamos tratando.

Data.gov - 2 views

    The home of the U.S. Government's open data Here you will find data, tools, and retoolss to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, design data visualizations, and more. This tool is very powerful for researchers that may not access to the funds and retoolss of researchers from well funded universities or that of the US Government. This retoolss breaks the data out into 21 different topics covering areas from education to the ocean. Each section has data sets to choose from and access to grant information as well as articles and updates on each topic. Even it you are someone that does not have the capacity to use these retoolss, I believe that it is good to know where to find this tools so that you can share it with others, or perhaps one day you will have the ability to use this retools more fully.

Beating the Odds: Building a Publishing "Maker" Culture | American Libraries Magazine - 1 views

    "With the emergence of new publishing tools, public libraries are able to be publishers for themselves. In essence, we can build a Maker culture for local publishing. "

    Thanks! I did not know about Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing. Quite useful!
  •  
    Two competing views on the future of publishing, and how shifts in consumer behavior to purchasing or consuming electronic content is causing such a shift in the literary world. I found it interesting to read that a number of open source software platforms were identified as the harbingers of today's self-publishing model online. I never knew Wattpad existed - watt an awesome site (pun intended). I agree with the articles viewpoint about the role that public libraries can play in this shifting landscape. A good read.

Emotions under Discussion: Gender, Status and Communication in Online Collaboration - 6 views

  •  
    Emotional expression and linguistic style in online collaboration differ substantially depending on the contributors' gender and status, and on the communication network. This should be taken into account when analyzing collaborative success, and may prove insightful to communities facing gender gap and stagnation in contributor acquisition and participation levels.

    Hi Ad, thank you for sharing this. My postdoc research was focused on communication challenges participants face online. It was only in the 90s that people believed that online communication supports a "democratic" style of communication, where people are not being distracted by physical appearance, social class, cultural background or gender. S.C. Herring and others conclusively refuted claims of gender anonymity and equality in online communication and published a lot about this topic (if you are interested). What I found particularly interesting to me in your resource is that we all about collaboration (schools, universities, companies, etc.), but we never take into account that participant's gender and/or status impact his/her willingness and ability to contribute.
  •  
    Thank you for sharing this interesting resource. I think that it is fascinating that this research focuses not only on discrepancies between the proportion of male and female contributors on Wikipedia, but also on differences in the actual communication and relationship styles based on the gender of contributors. I also thought that it was really interesting that the researchers found that while site administrators tended to be neutral, the editors were more emotional and relationship-oriented. I think that this comes from Wikipedia's mandate to remain neutral and objective. However, would argue that with this type of collaboration tool, there cannot be true "neutrality." Even if administrators attempt to maintain objective, impersonal tones, site content will inevitably be influenced by various socio-cultural biases.
  •  
    lubajong and taylor_cole thank you for your comments. From my part I will add a critical evaluation of this resource as well. The talk pages of Wikipedia provide a rich source for researchers to study communication patterns. On Wikipedia talk pages they have found signals for status differences between groups of participants, notably between admins and ordinary contributors. Those findings support in general the theories of the researchers about status differences and communication style differences between managers and employees in firms. They have also found differences in communication style bases on gender, which also support their general theories about gender (which is a social construct). What I - as a Wikipedian insider - finds missing in the article is the selection bias. Wikipedia admins aren't appointed by Jimmy Wales or some other body. Admins are community selected. The exact process differs per language version. On the English Wikipedia admin selection is by a community consensus process. Future admins are selected who show the preferred communication style of admins by other contributors including existing admins. For me, the patterns in communication style do not explain the gender gap on Wikipedia. There is a gender gap in many language versions of Wikipedia, but not in all. The Armenian language version of Wikipedia is a notable exception, showing a gender balance in the conbtributor base. An explanation of that exemption requires further research. What taylor_cole notes about neutrality and bias is a valid point. People volunteer to write for Wikipedia, and volunteer in topic choice. My guess is that in general people will opt to write about something they like, care about, know about. A lack of diversity in contributors will naturally reflect in lack of diversity of topics. For example nerdy males will write about things male nerds like. In general females tend to be interested in other topics than nerdy males. A lack of topics covered in Wikipe

    Levels of participation influences emotional expression and phrasing? has the function of sex and status of the taxpayer. 4 strands to study and find a result! Interesting!
